This Routledge Library Edition brings together a collection of classic and contemporary scholarship on the history of musical instruments. The volume includes essays by leading musicologists, ethnomusicologists, and organologists, offering a comprehensive overview of the field.

The Origins of Musical Instruments

The earliest known musical instruments date back to the Stone Age, with simple drums and flutes being found in archaeological sites around the world. Over time, these early instruments evolved and became more sophisticated, with the development of stringed instruments, wind instruments, and keyboard instruments.

The development of musical instruments was closely tied to the development of human culture. As societies became more complex, so too did their musical instruments. In ancient Egypt, for example, music was used for religious ceremonies, entertainment, and even medicine. The Egyptians developed a wide range of musical instruments, including harps, lutes, and drums.

The Middle Ages and the Renaissance

During the Middle Ages, music continued to play an important role in society. In the Christian Church, music was used for both liturgical and secular purposes. Monks developed a rich tradition of choral music, and polyphony became increasingly popular.

The Renaissance saw a renewed interest in classical learning, and this had a profound impact on music. Musicians began to study the writings of ancient Greek and Roman theorists, and they adopted many of their ideas about music. This led to the development of new musical instruments, such as the violin and the harpsichord.

The Baroque and Classical Periods

The Baroque period was a time of great innovation in music. Composers such as Bach, Handel, and Vivaldi wrote complex and elaborate works that required new and more sophisticated musical instruments. This led to the development of instruments such as the oboe, the clarinet, and the bassoon.

The Classical period saw a further refinement of musical instruments. Composers such as Mozart and Haydn wrote music that was more elegant and graceful than the music of the Baroque period. This led to the development of instruments such as the piano and the flute.

The Romantic Era and the 20th Century

The Romantic era saw a return to emotionalism in music. Composers such as Beethoven, Schubert, and Schumann wrote music that was more expressive and personal than the music of the Classical period. This led to the development of instruments such as the cello and the trombone.

The 20th century saw a wide range of new musical instruments being developed. Composers such as Stravinsky, Schoenberg, and Cage experimented with new sounds and textures, and this led to the development of instruments such as the synthesizer and the electric guitar.

The history of musical instruments is a long and fascinating one. From the simple drums and flutes of the Stone Age to the sophisticated instruments of the 21st century, musical instruments have played an essential role in human culture.

This Routledge Library Edition provides a comprehensive overview of the field of musical instrument history. The essays in this volume offer a wealth of information on the origins, development, and use of musical instruments throughout the world.
